Thousands are expected at the public viewings at Detroit’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History today and tomorrow for the 76-year-old Queen of Soul, who died of pancreatic cancer August 16.

Many in line are from Detroit, but others have come from as far as Miami and Las Vegas.
They sing Franklin’s hits and reminisce as they quickly make new friends.
A musical tribute will be held Thursday and then a private funeral Friday.
